IDIOT BOX @ Gallery 1988 LA

Idiot Box at Gallery 1988LA, April 2-23, 2009

100 artists take aim at TV’s guiltiest pleasures. And boy, let me tell you, there are a lot of them. Guilty pleasures, I mean. Well, artists too, obviously.

Let's face it, this is an unfathomably awesome theme for an art show. Not just TV, but bad TV. Bad TV that we love in spite of, or maybe because of its badness. The list of artists for this show is mindboggling. The host is Dennis “Mr. Belding” Haskins of “Saved By The Bell” infamy. Plus, it turns out that this show marks the 5th anniversary of the opening of Gallery 1988. The only non-awesome part is that, once again I am here in Tokyo while my artwork goes to more parties than me.

Patrick Gannon

Patrick's illustrations and artwork are made entirely of cut-paper (and often wood) in his studio in Tokyo, Japan, where he lives with his amazing wife and a very, very large collection of paper from all over the world.

Mixing bold whimsy with a subtle conceptual streak, his artwork combines influences from his life in Japan and his upbringing on a farm in New Jersey where he was surrounded (and occassionally attacked) by animals and the natural world. His interest in myths and fables, pop-culture, cool textures and weird critters invades his artwork.
